Wysłany: 2018-03-06, 13:10 any natural relief for arthritis in dog's leg?
Our recently adopted black lab has one swollen hock(? back leg knee joint). She only limps when she first gets up in the morning, then wants a long walk and to chase a tennis ball . I have started limiting the ball chasing because of the swelling, but she has had the morning limp since we rescued her. The swollen area is warm to the touch. She is on a daily joint supplement.
Rather than subject her to xrays and then possibly pain meds for the rest of her life, does anyone use a natural remedy for arthritis? (this is what our vet suspects it is).
I was even wondering if there was some type of poultice that could be applied while the dog was relaxing in the evening?
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
